Does the sensor have to be aimed perpendicular to the surface?

spacer image
No, often looking at a low angle allows you to avoid obstructions in the optical path or high ambient conditions.  When viewing rough surfaces like hot strip steel, the sensor can be aimed 15º from the horizontal.  When viewing glass, plastic or paper, the lowest angle allowed is 45º.
